Good Morning,
Thank you for your question. We understand your situation and will try our best to assist you.

There are several ways to increase your height:

  • eat a balanced diet : should include fresh vegetables, proteins, dairy, whole grains, avoid trans fat and sugar
  • get the right amount of sleep
  • stay active
  • practice good posture

For your information, calcium is indeed an important nutrient to increase height. However, the potential for height increasing is different for each individual in view of genetic factors, family traits and so on. On the other hand, because of the closure of the growth plate on long bone, men usually unable to increase height after the age of 21 years.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints.
